United Way launches campaign to end homelessness

A local social service agency is working on a new campaign to reduce homelessness.  The United Way of Western Connecticut has collaborated with Opening Doors of Fairfield County for this effort. 

 

Together, they have launched a 100 day campaign to direct the limited housing resources available to families and individuals who are currently experiencing a housing crisis. 

 

One of the goals of the effort is to reduce the family shelter wait list by housing 100 families.  Another goal is to reduce the time between assessment and allocation of resources for housing inventory.  The United Way says they also want to enhance outreach efforts to landlords to help increase the inventory of affordable rental units throughout Fairfield County.
